1990 until now
With the disappearance of the Berlin Wall, the post-war enemy image also disappeared. Seriously thinking about new missions and the size of the Army was a logical next step. At the same time new tasks were presented. The United Nations is now more than ever stepping in on the international security situation. The Netherlands, a loyal member of the United Nations, did their bit. Lebanon, Sinaï, Iraq, Cambodia, Haiti, Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo are a few names from a long series of countries in which Dutch servicemen are or have been deployed. Restructuring of the Army, Advanced Restructuring, November Letter, Priority Note, abolition of compulsory service are all consequences of a modified political view on the deployment of the army. An Army smaller in size that can be deployed fast and effectively is the new device. Of course, this new view on the army also had its consequences for the KCT!
In 1992 the first actual changes revealed themselves when 11 Airmobile Brigade was established. In the meantime it was realized that within the new concept there was a need for a unit to conduct special assignments. As of 1 January 1993 the 108 Special Forces Company (SF coy) was established. The commandos of this company were assigned to carry out special operations. Shortly after their training for "commando-special-operations' the platoons were deployed with Dutchbat 1 up to 3 respectively (1994-1995).
In the meantime it had become clear that compulsory service was about to be abolished soon. The Corps requested Army Command to put forward the existing plans to bring 104 LRRP coy to a reserve status as of 1 September 1995. Next the capacity of 108 SF coy could be increased. This was necessary, because by the end of 1995 five teams left for Bosnia to supervise the observance of the Dayton Peace Agreement. Shortly after the turn of the year the teams entered the area and enabled the arrival of 42 Mechanised Battalion from Seedorf (Germany).
Politicians and the Ministry of Defence noticed the great effort the Korps had to make to meet the obligations of missions abroad. After some drastic re-organisations, the KCT consists at the moment of four commando troop companies: 103, 104, 105 and 108 Special Forces company and a Staff, Support and Instruction Company. In this concept the KCT is capable of meeting the demand to conduct special operations within the Armed Forces and the Royal Army in an efficient way.
